It's important that you understand
about us, and how and why we began this computer building
project. I am a retired senior citizen, who got involved
with computers early in my life.
attended college and studied electrical engineering. After
college I spent
two years in the army working on specialized data communication
When I was discharged from
the military I went to work in the automobile industry, designing and
building the logic for customized automation equipment. This equipment
to automate the assembly line.
Following the auto industry, I went to work for a
manufacturer in an engineering capacity, working on data input and
assorted peripheral devices. While I was working at this company, I met
and married my lovely wife Deborah. That was in 1962. Since then we
have 3 children and 8 grandchildren, ages 18 down to the baby who was
born on Friday the 13th of 2010. They are located in Maryland, New
York, Virginia, and
a pleasure when we get to see them, unfortunately, not often enough.
But that's another story about us.
Continuing the story about us, my
career went on to a different computer manufacturer where I trained
other engineers on the internal workings of our computers. This
included both hardware and software.
Later I started my own
company in the data communications field. We specialized in automated
data transmission using high speed telephone lines and ultra high
frequency techniques. These transmission signals encompassed audio,
video, and data. After guiding the company for over 15 years, I finally
sold my interests.
last endeavor as an engineer was a second company I started, again in
the automated data communications field. But this time more involved
with the end
user. We provided a communications link to end users and businesses. I
ran this company until I sold it and retired.
is interesting; you have plenty of time to do things, and nothing to
do. After awhile I began looking for something I could sink my teeth
into, something that was not too physical and allowed me to think and
I decided the ideal thing was to create a website.
I never did anything like this and didn't know how to go about it. I
began by searching the web, and after a few years I found a source that
would support my site building efforts. But, unfortunately it didn't
work out. Continuing
the search I finally found SBI.
They gave me the tools to start the web
building process. It started with the Affiliate
Master Course, a free tutorial on
the step by step process of website building. Following the Master
Course, which I read a few times, as well as watching the video
to make sure I understood it. I began the quest, starting my website.
The first thing to do is deciding on a theme or
subject for the website. I spent a few months brainstorming ideas, in
order to decide which theme
I should write about. Obviously Building Computers,
it has been my life, and it keeps me thinking.
Then came the naming of the website, it took a
little research, but after awhile it also seemed obvious.
then on it is just about us cranking out pages, one, two, or three, a
week. Some weeks I don't write any, but, I always try to do something
for the website.

If you were attacked online, your name smeared and your reputation ruined, what would you do? When you can't get the sites that are posting the information about you to take it down and Google wouldn't help you, what would you do? That's the story behind Site Build It Scam. That site tells how it happened and how it can happen to anyone.
